A random bit of makery 'cause it occurred to me to take a couple of pictures tonight:

No, the xbox controller has nothing to do with it. It's just there for scale, although I do find it amusing that it looks like I might be advertising for some gay gamer/maker thing or somesuch. I hope I didn't get anyone's hopes up!

Star Hook Case (open)

All it is is a nice way to hold a subset of my crochet hooks. I have a larger case that my friend Marlene made for me, but it's a bit too large to tote around, so if I want to take a small collection of hooks, now I've got an easy and colourful way to do so. yeay!

The pattern for the star hook case is available on ravelry or the direct pattern link on the author's blog. All I did was change colours every two rows to make a rainbow case, which maybe isn't quite as clean and classy, but I think it's fun! It's a pretty interesting pattern, since all it does is make use of a stitch pattern that contains reasonably tight holes to make a ornate mesh that I can push hooks through. So clever!

It's also very soft. I'm tempted to make myself a very rainbow scarf to wear around town. But my PAX costume isn't done yet, so that comes first!

You cro-shayed a case for the hooks that you used to crochet it?

So meta! A little more automation and it could be a self-replicating crochet hook case.
